LOS ANGELES (AP) – Aubrey Plaza married longtime friend, director and screenwriter Jeff Baena.
The actor “Parks and Recreation” called Baena publicly “my husband” for the first time on Friday in an Instagram post. Her publicist confirmed that the two were married, but did not disclose any details.
Plaza (36) and Baena (43) have been a couple for about a decade. She has appeared in two of his films, Life After Beth in 2014 and The Little Hours in 2017, and is slated to appear in his upcoming Spin Me Round, which was the subject of her Instagram post.
“So proud of my beloved husband @jeffbaena that he came up with another movie that will take us to Italy to cause even more trouble,” Plaza said alongside a photo of the couple.
She also appears in the new Showtime anthology series “Cinema Toast” that he created.
Plaza is best known for starring Ludgate on the NBC comedy series “Parks and Recreation” from April 2009 to April 2015.
In addition to his films with Plaza, Baena directed the 2020 Netflix drama Horse Girl with Alison Brie, who co-wrote “Spin Me Round” with Baena and will star with Plaza.
